From Galina Krasskova:
the subject of atheist “Pagans” came up and again we were informed that they were so much nicer and ‘live and let live” than polytheists (of course they are, they have no religious integrity, no tradition to protect, no Gods to actually venerate. It’s rather like someone who maintains a steady diet of candy: just because they’re sweeter doesn’t mean it’s good for you. A steady diet of sugar will do nothing but make one ultimately sick just like a steady diet of pollution and impiety will make one spiritually sick).***
***I have no issue with atheists when they stay in their own sandbox. But atheist “pagans”? Oxymoronic in the extreme.
This is a great analogy. People need to eat their fucking vegetables. The vegetables are the gods. Or else they are going to die of spiritual diabetes.
